Accommodation at YHA Dartmoor

The hostel

There are 35 beds with a selection of private rooms and dorm beds at YHA Dartmoor. This comfortable rural retreat is perfect for family breaks and getting away from it all. YHA Dartmoor is packed full of character with exposed stone walls, and plenty of comfy furniture to relax on.

Land Pods

These fully waterproof structures sleep up to four adults and are slightly elevated off the ground for a comfortable night’s sleep under the stars – you can even open the roof for a better view! With LED lighting these cosy pods include all beds and bedding and are a great way to enjoy a stay in the peaceful surrounds of the Dartmoor National Park.

Hire the whole place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire.
